"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

The Garden of Fashion

Florals and bright colors are in bloom.

In these photographs the colorful dresses are trying to take center stage,
however the garden blossoms seem a bountiful competition.


This wonderful frock resembles billowing folds of sunshine.


The jewelry - a corsage bracelet of metal and the lace bodice of her dress, so
reminiscent of tatting that my grandmother used to do.
*tatting is a kind of knotted lace made by hand with a small shuttle - a lost art.




I am intrigued by the asymmetrical sleeves on this very 1940's inspired dress.


Draped and ruffled fabric makes for a very feminine and flirty summer dress.


Orange is a big in collections for the summer but it is a color that never seems to translate into real trends on the street. Maybe that is enough reason for me to be drawn to it.
